It was clean and comfortable for the most part. The pillows were too fluffy so my neck was sore the next day. I wasn’t sure the soap should have been unwrapped upon arrival. Normally it is a new bar that I remove the paper from. We found a piece of pepperoni on the floor, it was missed when cleaning.

The staff are great, and the rooms are clean and fairly updated. The only thing that bothered me was the required room deposit of $100 on a credit card, no cash deposit allowed. This was not mentioned on orbitz, and since i had paid for the room (nonrefundable) had i not had $100 on a credit card, i would have lost the money for the room. Its also a bit of a problem that it can or will take 7 to 10 days to credit me back the $100. Other than that, i was happy with my time spent at the guesthouse inn.

Great price and located well. Nice to have breakfast included. The only complaint we had was the bed was extremely uncomfortable. The matress felt like it had all the springs popping out of it.

At check-in, the front desk attendant allowed us to have a room on the 3rd floor instead of the ground floor room that had been assigned in their res

Out of season value. One caveat. 3p checkin is taken seriously as a policy. $25 charge for early checkin which is unusual in this level of motel. I arrived at 2p and the policy was enforced despite a half empty motel. Rooms are large and comfortable, good wifi. Don't bring a cat, dogs only (why?) plus a charge for the pet. Add-on charges for what others offer as an ammenity.

Great room st a ever better price including free breakfast. Yes!

The breakfast was one of the worst I’ve seen in all my travels

Plain and simple the manager and one front staff are fraudulent...

Just certain people when not present will not understand the truth and voice wrong opinions madly directed at a customer...

When we checked in, the TV only got one channel and wasn’t able to be fixed. We had already showered, and unpacked, so we had to repack and move to another room. The next room had no clock. Oh, well. Breakfast was terrible - the eggs were these symmetrical yellow disks and the sausage (I assume) matched. We did grab a teeny yogurt and fruit to go. We ate at the Old Town Cafe in downtown Bellingham. I would stay elsewhere on another visit.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is right across the street from a Fred Meyer grocery store. Convenient access to I-5. Stayed for a week due to an accident and really enjoyed it. Will stay here again next time in Bellingham, absolutely.

The property is a good value for the price. Nice staff and clean breakfast room.

I have stayed here often. A "new policy" applies a $25 charge for anyone checking in before 3:00p (whether room are available earlier or not). $25 if you don't check out by 11:00a. Whatever happened to late checkouts for good reason? This is a charge for which the guest gets nothing in return and resembles what airlines have done, charging for things that were always free. The "guest" pays and gets nothing. Not acceptable. Rooms arwe comfortable and adequately spacious, but one small single outlet is available far removed from the desk and ining table. One of the two lampos in my room did not work.

The pillows we all too high, put a crick in my neck. Figured it out with two bath towels though. Everything else was just fine!

Nice older hotel. Clean but dated. Great location but we had a view of the parking and buildings Our family on the other side had views of the freeway which at times was loud. Had an amazing free breakfast. Very nice staff. Overall a nice place to stay, especially for the price. I would stay there again.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. To clear up any confusion, if a guest is unable to pay the damage deposit the hotel requires, we are happy to offer a free cancellation. The guest must then contact the booking agent they made the reservation with to finish cancelling the reservation and to get their money refunded. If choosing to stay, banks usually only take a couple of business days to release the deposit hold back to the guest, but we warn that it may take longer because weekends or holidays can extend the amount of time the banks need to do this. We hope you have a nice day.

The reason for the strict check in policy is that even if it is a slow night at the hotel, the night before may not have been, so we would still be turning over rooms to get them ready and may not have every room type ready early.
